Well, well, now I think the reason more academic and medical
professionals don't want to get involved with ufology is the
chance they take by having to suffer through being called names
by people who claim they want to be taken seriously.

Gosh, Velez was not even afforded an intelligent rebuttal; just
called a name from someone - I assume is a ufologist - signing
off as "S. Blanch".  It gives one pause to decide who is the
"goose" in this situation.
